Real (full) name: Jasmin

Habitat: Austria

Which guitar(s) do you own? Alvaro No.20 - It's not mine, though. I don't actually own any guitars  just yet. My awesome mother-in-law lends me the Alvaro until I have enough funds to buy my own. It's pretty old, one of those beginner acoustic guitars.

Which guitar do you currently play on? Alvaro No.20

Which amp(s) do you own? None so far

How long have you been playing guitar? About a week, I think?

Which is/are your favorite music genre(s)? Rock, Alternative, Indie, Metal, some Pop.

Which genre do you play on your guitar often? So far nothing, I'm still practicing chord changes, but once I get the hang of it, I'm guessing a lot of rock, maybe some folk, and I really wanna learn blues one day.

Who are your favorite bands? That's tough. Avenged Sevenford, Volbeat, Three Days Grace, etc. I listen to a lot of rock and "harder" music.

What inspired you to start playing guitar? I always wanted to play the guitar ever since I was little, but my parents never really had the money to afford it. Now that I'm grown up, I can finally get started on my own with the help of my supportive boyfriend (who goes above and beyond to get me everything I could possibly need on my journey).

Do you play in a band or have you been playing in a band? Nah

Why do you play guitar? It helps me relax, weirdly enough, even though I'm not all that great at it so far. It helps me forget the stressful everyday life. Plus, I wanna keep my brain challenged and am always looking for something new to learn :D

What are your goals for the future? Become a decent guitar player, someday maybe even a good one! ^^

You are correct, Brian. I only know them because folk have played some YT clips at work and they are local. As you'd rightly imagine there are other local artists I would rather have international visibility.

Age: 46
Habitat: West Sussex, England


Which guitar(s) do you own?
Squire Vintage Modified Stratocaster
John Grey & Sons Kruna (acoustic)

Which guitar do you currently play on?
Squire Vintage Modified Stratocaster

Which amp(s) do you own?
Blackstar ID:15TVP

For how long have you been playing guitar?
Well that's a long story but in summary. Just over 20 years ago I bought myself a USA Fender Strat and started to teach myself. Gave up after a year but kept wanting to go back to it. 10 years later hadn't gone back to it so sold the guitar and have regretted it ever since. Then a year ago I decided to try again and bought myself the Squire. Started having lessons but financially couldn't keep it up. Finally a month ago I decided to have another go but this time using this website. So far absolutely LOVE IT!

Which is/are your favorite music genre(s)?
Rock and Blues

Which genre do you play on your guitar often?
At the moment just learning the chords in the beginners lessons so not really 'playing' a genre as such although when choosing songs to strum along to in the beginners song book I lean towards rock ones as I don't really know how the others sound.

Who are your favorite bands?
Pink Floyd / David Gilmour (David Gilmour is for me the greatest guitarist ever. So expressive and with the most incredible tone).
Queen (Brian May & his Red Special was the first person to get me into guitar music and indeed into music as a whole).
Muse (Matthew Bellamy and his Manson MB-1 is an incredible combination).
BB King (absolute legend who phrasing just blows my mind)

I could go on and on

What inspired you to start playing guitar?
For me the guitar is the most expressive instrument there is, nothing conveys the emotions of the player quite like a guitar and as such the guitar and the player become one. I struggle with being able to verbalise my emotions and was attracted to hopefully be able to do that via the guitar instead.

Do you play in a band or have you been playing in a band?
Nope and in all honesty I don't want to. For me the thought of playing in front of people is both daunting and not pleasurable. I want to play guitar for me, I don't actually particularly want anyone to hear me play in terms of an 'audience' but it would be nice to get to a level where I could jam with other musicians.

Why do you play guitar?
To try and express myself. Because it's fun. Because there is so much music out there that I'd dearly love to  be able to play. Because the sound of a guitar is addictive.

What are your goals for the future?
To have learned enough to justify buying myself another USA Fender Strat because I adored that guitar and wish I never sold it. And to be able to jam some blues riffs and eventually, one day, to be able to play some Pink Floyd songs without it sounding too awful.
